Poor Gri(
Ouster, A
Board head Asserts Real
Reason Was Not Given
Because Not Necessary
Criser Given Three
Year Contract Here
Flatly stating that Harry G. Kipke
was not dismissed as head coach of
Michigan's football team because of
the failure to win games, Prof. Ralph
W. Aigler, chairman of the Board in
Control of Physical Education, yester-
day upheld the board's action in a
radio broadcast here.
Although Professor Aigler failed to
clarify certain "conditions," which he
declared were instrumental in the
board's action, it was generally be-
Iieved on the campus that those fac-
tors affecting Kipke included:
() Dubious private associates.
(2) Activity in organizing and ad-
ministering subsidies contrary to Big
Ten practices.
(3.) Sanctioning of summer prac-
tice, which is also a violation of the
Conference code.
(4.) Failure to maintain the con-
fidence and respect of his own staff
of assistants.
(5.) General incompetency.
Crisler Gets 3-Year Contract
Aigler also revealed that the newly-
appointed Coach, Herbert 0. (Fitz)
Crisler had been given a three-year
contract, wlich is a divergence from
past University policy of hiring its
coaches on a yea-to-year basis.
Aigler asserted that the reasons for
Kipke's ouster had not been made
public becaue "it is not necessary."
'The matcr of Kipke's contract I
had been under discussion for a year
prior to the announcement of its
termination," Aigler said. "If mcm-
bars of our board had voted accord-
ing to our convictions without regard
to other Lctors the action would
have been taken more than a year
ago. We delayed it in an effort to
avoid injustice and hoped that in a
year's time the conditions would be
cleared up."
Does No Tell Conditions
He did not explin what was meant
by the term "conditions."
Discussing the silence that has pre-
vailed concerning reasons for Kipke's
ouster, Aigler said:
"Many institutions have terminat-
ed their (football, coaches) contracts
without a published statement of the
reasons. It will suflice to sa'y that all
of the 14 members of our board hadd
agreed in taking the action that wa
In reply to comment that the Board
was "unfair" in that it did not permit
Kipke to resign, Aigler said:
"The action of our Board which
provided that notice should be given
that the contract would not be re-
newed contained a further provision
that Mr. Kipke should be given an op-
portunity to resign. But for a reason
which he thought was suilcient h'
did not do so.

unforgiveable sin of making young

last night, speaking before the Univer-
sity of Michigan Club of New York.
"Specifically," the President con-
tinued, "the student is within his
right to question the appropriateness
of the halo of ethical sanctification
over economic expediency or to chal-
lenge the calculated and unrelenting
pursuit of profit."
Universities Not Rede
He pointed out that, far from bcimg
"red" or even liberal, our universities
are, on the whole, really the strong-
holds of conservatism, and important
in maintaining the "status quo."
"Even more," the President stated,
"these institutions tend with age to
become crystallized by tradition. reg-
ulations and departmentalization un-
til with them the term "liberal edu-
cation" is a travesty, and they func-
tion as molds into which students are
poured to emerge either as a uniform
product or as rejects of the process."
"Thus," Dr. Ruthven said, "an evi-

on Austrian Chancellor Kurt Schus-

many there is no doubt that disap-

The two Austrian-born leaders of
the German people--Fuehrer Adolf
Hitler and Schuschnigg--are farther
apart today than they ever have been.
A number of leadin Nazis in Berlin
said that Schuschnigg had failed to
seize an opportunity inhis'speech yes-
terday to the Austrian Parliament to
support Hitler and, therefore, must go
into the discard. They said the "a'-
dress was his swan song."
Indignation was felt that Schus-
chnigg had praised Italian Premier
Mussolini for his interest indAustria's
independence but had failed even to
mention Hitler by name, much less
praise him as a friend.
Official Germany expressed the
opinion, however, that "there is no
evidence whatever that Mussolini had
anything to do with the Schuschnigg
Unofficial Nazi comment, imme-

which was broadcast to Germany as
